GROW WITH US: Reforestation Initiative

Grow With Us Initiative at JSP sponsored by Inside Out Landscape Design
Josephine Sculpture Park and Inside Out Landscape Design have partnered to collaborate on a major reforestation and conservation initiative for the Park.
GROW WITH US  will place native trees and shrubs throughout the park with interactive features that combine art and science in fascinating ways. The landscape plan will also be focused around the 10 acre expansion and historic Tobacco Barn that was purchased by the Park in 2018 to allow for more community programming with additional exhibition and classroom space in the barn and conserve the land for future generations.
YOU can GROW WITH US in a meaningful and lasting way.
With your donation of $500, $1,000, or more, a native shrub or tree will be planted in your or a loved one’s name, and will be acknowledged on a permanent GROW WITH US donor sign.
GROW WITH US is the final phase of the JSP Capital Campaign which began in 2018 to purchase the additional 10 acres and restore the Tobacco Barn and native landscape. We have raised $225,000 of our $350,000 goal. With your support, the GROW WITH US initiative will help us raise the final $125,000.
THANK YOU for helping JSP stay strong for the future!
